The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has sounded caution against fake, phishing websites and unauthorised use of the Board’s logo on social networking websites. In a public advisory issued recently, the Secretary of the Board, Anurag Tripathi said that it has come to notice of the Board that various commercial websites have created CBSE look alike pages with logo of CBSE on social networking sites for registration of candidates creating confusion among public.
“The general public is advised to visit CBSE official website for authentic and official information and prevent themselves from being cheated by the unscrupulous elements. Any information available or displayed other than CBSE website, must be got verified from the official website of CBSE. The CBSE never asks for any details directly from the students through e-mail, facebook, twitter, phone or any other source. The members of public are also advised to sensitize and advise other persons around them that CBSE will proceed to initiate appropriate action with concerned authorities,” said the advisory. (EOIC)
